a wood paddle (see figure). The natural length of the cord is L0 200 mm, its crosssectional area is A 1.6 mm2, and its modulus of elasticity is E 2.0 MPa. After being
struck by the paddle, the ball stretches the cord to a total length L1 900 mm.
What was the velocity v of the ball when it left the paddle? (Assume linearly elastic
behavior of the rubber cord, and disregard the potential energy due to any change in
elevation of the ball.) Solution 2.8-6 Rubber ball attached to a paddle
